  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!​
    A good Wednesday to you, Nikon crew, and welcome to December (is that even possible?). The colder weather is making some indoor location scouting more attractive. I got distracted watching this watcher watch the fountain in the huge atrium at the National Harbor complex, here in the DC area. It's quite a space. Shooting indoors, or out? Share a photo!

    Here in Finland the winter has finally come since the temperature went below -20°C.
    Still I would prefer more snow but luckily we have enough snow for sliding! =)

  11. Hello everyone...

    As I've never tried studio photography, I went on a course earlier this week to learn the basics. Unfortunately, our model didn't turn up, so we took turns to "model" for each other. It was quite interesting to learn how to control light and create some interesting shots. Hopefully, this won't be my last.

  14. I left the office a little early on friday afternoon, while there was still some light to make use of. Our region has had temperatures between -10 and -30degC for the last 3 weeks and as a result there are now many beautiful winter scenes to document. This particular scene caught my eye, down at the edge of the marina.

    Sea Otter feeding on clams, Moss Landing, California. While I always knew that there are a lot of sea otters along the central/northern California coast, it took me a while to find a good photo location. It turns out that there are a lot of them near the mouth of Elkhorn Slough, near the dock and boat launch in Moss Landing.

  36. The 105/2.5 Ai was the first lens I purchased in 1979 but it soon got neglected and zooms took its place in my bag. Nowadays, I have a better appreciation for this lens and am glad I hung onto it. I had trouble focusing it on a D200 and D300 and blamed the viewfinder - until it turned out that I needed progressive glasses to overcome the onset of presbyopia. Didn't have the chance to shoot some portraits, for which this lens now has become a favorite (again) but couldn't resits taking it around the block for a spin nonetheless.

  38. I had the honor of photographing this year's area Sturge-Weber Foundation Turkey Bowl (pictured here is the winning team and the host and my friend, in the bright orange, holding the banner) on Thanksgiving Day. A very sizable amount of money was donated for the cause including 100% of my profits from photoing families and friends and printing them right there, at the function. It was a blast~ a great live alternative rock band, an open bar, fire pits, entertainment for children (balloon artist, bounce house, paper origami crafts table and a clown) and of course football~ you know the place was rocking when the cops showed up at 10:30am to tell the band to turn it down (funny thing is, is that the host is a state cop, so were a good portion of the guests, so needless to say, the band continued to crank it). We had a blast, I busted my hump and we raised great funds and awareness for the Sturge-Weber Foundation. A very good and eventful day, all around. (all permissions were gained by me for use of this photo)

  41. Hi everyone, and hope you had a great week with plenty to be thankful for.
    Tried something a bit different for me this past week - no bugs, no drops and no dew.
    Went to the zoo to try and capture the eyes of some of some of the animals.
    Hope you enjoy ---

  43. Fellow Nikonians,
    My pic, this week, is a pink rose, dedicated to the few women photographers of this forum, to stimulate their participation. It was taken in a very rainy day, at the garden of the Casa da Insua, a beatifull manor house at Penalva do Castelo, Viseu, Portugal, adapted for tourism. I hope you enjoy it.
    Have a good photo week !

  50. I've been away but there are great pictures as usual. My contribution is a pair of raptors taken at Caloundra during a recent visit to Australia. Despite my best attempts I could not identify them but perhaps Greg K or Grant T could help out. D80 18-200 VR 200mm F16

  52. My image this week was taken while helping a friend at a wedding. I was taking shots using my mono-pod. I decided to be creative and try something new, at least for me, as I don't do weddings. I was using my Nikon D300 with a Nikon 20mm f2.8 lens, Nikon SB900 flash, with a Nikon MC-36 multi function remote. I positioned the camera on the mono-pod and using the mono-pod as a boom pole, I was able to get aerial type shots. Thanks for looking...

  57. Really great photos so far today. I hope to be back later to pick those that inspired me a little more.
    My photo today is from a couple of weeks ago at a local Bluegrass Concert.
    I used my Nikon D90, Sigma 70-200 @ 70mm, f9, 1/100, iso 3200.
    I coverted to B & W in Photoshop and cleaned up some extraneous light sources in the background.

  63. Talking about cold weather, I took the D7000 I bought for work for a test drive and went out with few friends, both human and canine type. It was a really cold morning, -20 C, and I'm happy to report that the D7000 handled the freezing weather very well. Not the sharpest shot of the day but my better half was absolutely sure that I should choose it anyway for my Wednesday Pic.

  72. It's nice to be able to look forward to seeing some fabulous shots on a grey, drizzily Wednesday. A few of my favourites so far come from Paula Wang, Hamish Gray, Ton Mestrom, Tim Holte, Andres Arteaga and Scott Murphy. Thanks to Benjamin Shaefer and Jose Angel for mentioning my pic last week :)

  74. I love coming home from work and viewing the humbling shots from Nikon Wednesday. Hamish, as always, wonderful shot... full of mood and speculation. Would take a long time to mention all the others that impressed me today.
    This shot was taken two weeks ago on Cumberland Island, Georgia. Cool and breezy day with intense sunshine.

  77. Ken P.
    Welcome. Every Wednesday is a treat, and I agree about Paula'a shot - and Roberta's and Ofey and Chris W. and Scott M and Walter and lots more.
     
  78. This is my first post on the Wednesday thread, as until a couple weeks ago my only piece of Nikon gear was a lens cleaning cloth. But I recently acquired a Nikon F3/T and some lenses, but haven't had a chance to run any film through it. My cousin came over for Thanksgiving with his D80, I put a couple of them on it and took some pictures. It was tricky to focus accurately without a split-prism or live view, but I got a couple keepers. This one was taken the day after Thanksgiving when it stopped raining/sleeting and the sun came out. I rushed outside to get some shots before the ice melted. I used my 105 f/2.5 wide open for this shot.
    My favorite image so far is Doug Santo's. I love the tones and shapes.
    00XmXL-307631584.jpg
     
  79. My contribution is a picture I took the other day on my way to the Mandela Way T-34... err... local Royal Mail office. I liked the contrast between the Shard and the classic London brick railway bridges. The mist contributes to give some special air to the tall building. All taken with my usual gear: D60, 35mm f/1.8 AF-S DX.

  86. Hi Pieter
    In relation to the raptors, i think they may be a type of sea eagle sitting on a dead pandanus branch. I frequent Caloundra on a regular basis as my parents have units there so i should know. At home i have a book on birds in the local area and will have a look at that to see if i can identify them
     
  87. Some lovely photos, just to pick out a couple, Tim Holt's, Bogdan Nicolescu lovely classic photograph and Chris Wick's wacky family. Also, thanx Jose for your nice remark last week. Here's a fun pic involving 3 good friends, a king size bed, Caipirinhas and a D700 with 17-35. [​IMG]
